Schlitterbahn opens its season on Friday, and it will be the first full season this year for the Verruckt water slide, the world’s tallest water slide.

The Verruckt made its debut last year to worldwide attention.

Besides Verruckt, Schlitterbahn features four man-made tubing rivers including the longest tidal wave river, six tube slides and chutes, six beaches, and a hot tub with a swim-up refreshment bar. There are also 13 mini-slides for children.

The first week of this season will be the American Heroes Week at Schlitterbahn. First responders and military will receive free admission from May 22-29. Their family members will get 50 percent off as well.

    Maybe you can help me. I am asking for Schlitterbahn to include Gold Star Families in the American Heroes Week. Their hero paid the ultimate sacrifice and should be honored that week too…
